SLS Hotel at Beverly Hills, a Luxury Collection Hotel
Combine Philippe Starck’s exuberant interiors with the genius for tapas of chef José Andrés and the retail vision of design curator Murray Moss, and you have a hotel unlike any other. Though the lobby scene may border on chaotic, the guest rooms are whisper-quiet and American Gigolo–minimalist, with peekaboo sliding doors between the bath and boudoir. But God help you if you have self-esteem issues: virtually every surface in the rooms is reflective. Ultra-trendy though it may be, SLS delivers service that is doting to a fault.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
